Please let me know if this Q is more suited for a fedora list.
when opening the attached ASCII-file, prod.mod, nautilus complains:
The filename "prod.mod" indicates that this file is of type "Amiga
SoundTracker audio". The contents of the file indicate that the file
is of type "plain text document". If you open this file, the file
might present a security risk to your system.
Do not open the file unless you created the file yourself, or received
the file from a trusted source. To open the file, rename the file to
the correct extension for "plain text document", then open the file
normally. Alternatively, use the Open With menu to choose a specific
application for the file.
Even if I use Properties, Open with, and selects a text editor as
default it still won't open if I double click it.
Don't open it, save it to disk, execute the mv command, as so:
bjørge machine-name:~$ mv prod.mod prod.txt
or so then open it with your favourite text editor.
that sounds like a strange way to solve it since .mod is the correct
suffix for this type of ASCII-file. Why can it not open it if it ends in
.mod when I want it to do that? I do understand what the text says, but
I know opening this file is not a security risk. This "security measure"
seems very dumb and I would like to remove it.
